Reading 1, Ezekiel 37:1-14
2 He made me walk up and down and all around among them. There were vast quantities of these bones on the floor of the valley; and they were completely dry.
3 He said to me, 'Son of man, can these bones live?' I said, 'You know, Lord Yahweh.'
4 He said, 'Prophesy over these bones. Say, "Dry bones, hear the word of Yahweh.
7 I prophesied as I had been ordered. While I was prophesying, there was a noise, a clattering sound; it was the bones coming together.
8 And as I looked, they were covered with sinews; flesh was growing on them and skin was covering them, yet there was no breath in them.
11 Then he said, 'Son of man, these bones are the whole House of Israel. They keep saying, "Our bones are dry, our hope has gone; we are done for."
13 And you will know that I am Yahweh, when I open your graves and raise you from your graves, my people,

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 107:2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9
2 So let them say whom Yahweh redeemed, whom he redeemed from the power of their enemies,
3 bringing them back from foreign lands, from east and west, north and south.
4 They were wandering in the desert, in the wastelands, could find no way to an inhabited city;
5 they were hungry and thirsty, their life was ebbing away.
6 They cried out to Yahweh in their distress, he rescued them from their plight,
7 he set them on the road, straight to an inhabited city.
9 He has fed the hungry to their hearts' content, filled the starving with good things.
Gospel, Matthew 22:34-40
35 and, to put him to the test, one of them put a further question,
36 'Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?'
38 This is the greatest and the first commandment.
39 The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself.
40 On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.'
